Go here to see an Ipod knock off I did. Shot everyone on green screen and did in FCP. There are some artifacts due to compression fro the web. Not as good as the original but not bad for a 2 day turn around

I can only guess but possibly a two-color matte? Green screen background, and red headphones, then do two separate matte passes. You could try a luminance key for white headphones, but that might be harder.

In any case, I expect the actual Apple spots used quite a bit of roto and cleanup (if not animation) to get the ipod and wires to stand out just right.
